ONE "LITTLE THING" THAT THE ASSASSINATION
RECORDS REVIEW BOARD OVERLOOKED
On May 26, 1992, 7 months before his death, Certified Legal Investigator Joe West sought
and received special permission from the funeral home that embalmed John F. Kennedy for West to conduct a telephone interview with Thomas
Evan Robinson, one of the JFK embalmers. The permission process was lengthy and the interview almost didn't transpire.
Below are the handwritten notes of the May 26, 1992 conversation with Mr. Robinson,
found in Joe West's Investigator's Notebook following West's death in 1993.
A transcription of the page follows the original in case readers have difficulty reading Mr. West's handwriting.

HOW COULD THE ASSASSINATION RECORDS REVIEW BOARD NOT SUBPOENA THOMAS EVAN
ROBINSON AND HEAR THIS CRUCIAL EVIDENCE THAT PROVES, BEYOND ANY REASONABLE
DOUBT, THAT THE MURDER OF JOHN F. KENNEDY WAS A CONSPIRACY?
The sad part is that the ARRB report is supposed to renew the American people's
trust in their government.
